-Recording cuts out during Tex Mex Mile and resumes with Kev
talking about the Cactus before the final song (All The Labor).
Because of that, two to three minutes is missing from this recording.
-Due to the high amount and high quality of reminiscing by the band,
the between song banter has been cut into separate tracks.
-Also included are the soundcheck tracks at the end of the second disc.

Aaron, just an amazing-sounding recording. Thanks so much for capturing this great show and sharing it so quickly.

This may be the most intimate Gourds show on the archive. Feels like I'm in the room... wish I was. Great job capturing this, Aaron- both the performance and the clarity of the recording make this a must have.

gourds went out in style
recording is crystal clear. performance is loose and fun. starts to heat up around trampled. I love that their instruments were still in transit from wyoming, forcing them to break out jimmy's old guitar (same one they passed around the cactus stage in 1994). great stories start to finish. if this turns out to be their last show at the cactus, they certainly went out in style.
p.s. great job tracking the banter, aaron.
